As the Preschool Principal, I cannot express the joy that I have to be a part of the Bayan family, especially the KG building. I have been a Nursery, KG, Primary teacher, College Lecturer and Primary Vice Principal. This year the Preschool team consists of an international staff. Each class has a qualified teacher and supporting teaching assistants. Every employee has been carefully selected for their genuine love for children, and for their warm and caring natures.
The Preschool experience allows a child to develop at his/her own pace, with gentle guidance using a wide range of activities, learning materials, discussion, creative play, singing and projects on relevant topics of interest to each individual.
We place an emphasis on the transition from preschool to primary by providing an academic program. Our students' bilingual education includes personal growth, social and emotional development, communication, language and literacy skills, mathematical development, knowledge and understanding of the world, physical education, and creative development.
Our preschool is a wonderful haven for children. It radiates a very warm and cheerful educational atmosphere that will nurture each individual. Special activities have been designed to stimulate a child's visual, auditory, tactile, selling and tasting senses and to develop fine and gross motor coordination. 2015 - 2016 brings some exciting changes and we hope all of our students have a wonderful year.

The Pre-School Program at Bayan School promotes positive relationships among all children and encourages each child’s sense of individual self-worth and belonging as part of a community. The curriculum encourages - social, emotional, physical, language (both Arabic and English), and cognitive learning and development.
The program is a dual language program and students alternate classroom instruction in these languages every other day. In addition, within the program the subjects of music and physical education (PE) are taught by qualified instructors. Children are given experiences that strengthen growth across a broad range of developmental and content areas.
Children are provided with learning experiences that allow for exploration, creative expression, as well as opportunities to learn individually and in groups according to their developmental needs and interests.
Teachers’ thorough knowledge of each child helps them to plan appropriately challenging curricula and to design instruction that responds to each child’s strengths and needs. The program maintains collaborative relationships with each child’s family to support children’s development in all settings. The kindergarten program (KG1 and KG2) emphasizes early literacy and numeracy development with an aim to prepare children with a strong entry into Grade 1 in the Primary School.
